onions potatoes & Mushroom compost
Has anyone ever planted onions and /or potatoes in hills of Mushroom & leaf compost?
I'm in zone 6 South central Pa.
Last fall I made 8 rows about 16" high of shredded leaves and spent Mushroom compost.(More mushroom then leaves) Over the winter the rows have settled at about 10". Wondering if this would be safe to plant onions & potatoes directly into it.

Re: onions potatoes & Mushroom compost
I did a quick search and found this: http://www.gardenerscorner.org/subject044118.htm apparently there is some concern about the amount of pesticide in mushroom compost... (is yours organic?) and one person there says its not good for potatoes...
